Now that's better! Definitely more springy than last month's Room with a View...though wouldn't be hard, would it?
Still, the weather hasn't picked up massively since March - a few promising, sunny days that get your hopes up, and just as you're tempted to venture down the summery end of the wardrobe, it's straight back to dull, grey gloom. Nondescript days. Far too many of them.
Lovely this morning, mind - but according to my daily weather update from Beryl the school bus driver, it's not going to last...
Everything's so late as well: the trees and hedges look quite bare in the photo compared to a similar one I took this time last year. It's nice that the daffs and crocuses are still out, but I'd rather have the warmth of the sun on my pale, pasty skin. It really doesn't feel like the garden's bursting into life..more like it's hobbling along; as if the season hasn't got into its stride yet.
I'm sure things will get moving next month. I love May. Even the weeds look good in May.
